It all started with a woman that went on vacation with her husband. Friends were watching their dog, Oliver while they were gone. Somehow Oliver went missing and the trauma began. No matter how vigilant dog sitters are there is always the chance that the pet will try to get home.
There are only a few options to assist in finding a lost pet. You can put up posters, call the shelters and search the area but they are all time consuming. You are pretty much spinning your wheels because the animal is moving as fast as you are. There is now an alternative to finding your pet that is faster and much more efficient.
After experiencing the heartbreak of losing a pet, Dawn Wilson set up a Facebook page called “OliverAlert” for people to post both lost and found pets. The page currently has over 5,000 friends. Realizing the importance of immediate action and accessible resources OliverAlert.com was started. It is a website designed to help people who has lost or found a beloved pet. It includes helpful links, shelter listings and important information. In my opinion is was a brilliant idea to have a pet alert system like that of “Amber Alerts” for children. Most pet owners do feel their pets are like their children. OliverAlert.com reaches all over the world using the facebook network and other social media sites to find missing companions. The free advice and a guide to websites is a valuable tool to help reunite pets with their families.
As a result of a great love for animals Dawn took it to another level and created the search engine aKeKee.com, It’s a search engine like Google and Indeed but specifically designed to search for pets and is the only one of its kind. aKeKee.com, the first vertical search engine for pets, was launched on December 11, 2010. As the sister site of OliverAlert.com, aKeKee.com offers the most comprehensive search engine for pet listings. The website provides access to animal postings, compiled from the leading pet websites, which are listed for adoption, for sale, or lost and found.
A feature story CBS Atlanta aired on aKeKee.com and its creator, Dawn H. Wilson. It’s a story about one incredibly driven woman’s dream and how it has come to life. The creation of website, a service unlike anything else in existence that benefits people and animals everywhere.
Founded and designed by Dawn H. Wilson, aKeKee.com was developed by Software Consultant Rob Faraj. Wilson also received guidance from Chris Lamprecht, Software Engineer at the leading search engine for jobs. The site based in the U.S offers users the convenience of a single interface to search for almost any kind of pet. The philosophy of aKeKee, Inc. is to keep it simple.

Dawn’s hope is for people everywhere to have access to finding out about aKeKee.com so it can be of assistance to everyone who needs it. Searching for a pet has never been so easy.
